The result is How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, a collection of songs, written and recorded over the course of 2014. Produced by Markus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay).

“It was sort of a crash landing” Florence freely admits, “I guess although I’ve always dealt in fantasy and metaphor when I came to writing, that meant the songs this time were dealing much more in reality.

Her limited vocals on this track draw me in even more. Florence Welch’s voice and energy is a natural form of medicine that is spiritual and passionate.

In addition to having a big summer tour in the works, the band is slowly releasing tracks from their upcoming album.
